Lichtsteiner heading to Augsburg 0

Posted on August 20, 2019 by Harry Kettle

As reported by BBC, Stephan Lichsteiner has officially completed his move to German side Augsburg over in the Bundesliga. The 35 year old veteran had been in search of a new club after leaving Arsenal earlier on in the summer transfer window, making 23 appearances for the club in the process. While he didn’t exactly blow the roof off of the Emirates during his time here, though, we’d say it’s safe to suggest that Gunners fans are wishing him all the best for what lies ahead.

“For me this step is exactly the challenge that I wanted after my trip to England,” he said.

With two victories behind him and his team, one against Newcastle and one against Burnley this past Saturday, Unai Emery is excited to put his squad to the test at Anfield on 24 August.

After signing five new players in the most recent transfer window – David Luiz, Nicolas Pépé, Gabriel Martinelli, William Saliba and Kieran Tierney – and brining Dani Ceballos on loan from Real Madrid, the Gunners’ boss is looking forward to measuring up to the reigning Champions League holders. After finishing fifth in the last season’s Premiere League table with 21 wins and 70 point altogether, Emery will endeavor to reduce the difference in points between his team and Manchester City and Liverpool, who scored 98 and 97 points, respectively.

On This Day: Arsenal begin PL journey at Emirates 0

Posted on August 19, 2019 by Harry Kettle

It’s always nice to take a trip down memory lane, especially as we live in such a cynical era for the beautiful game. Instead of drifting away from the past we should be embracing it and celebrating it, especially when it comes to Arsenal Football Club, as there’s a lot to be happy about from years gone by.

Today, we’re going to take a quick look at a pretty important game that went down 13 years ago today: Arsenal vs Aston Villa. These two historic English football clubs squared off back in 2006 at Emirates Stadium. The reason why that’s so important is because it was the first Premier League game that had been played at the brand new stadium, following the move over from Highbury.

Big test coming up for Arsenal 0

Posted on August 19, 2019 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal were able to secure their second consecutive Premier League win of the season this weekend, as they edged past Burnley to move onto six points for the campaign. The game wasn’t exactly a slam dunk and the Clarets caused Unai Emery’s men plenty of problems, but in the end, they got the job done. Above all else, the fact that they were able to overcome adversity like that is the biggest step forward of them all.

Dani Ceballos off to a good start 0

The real star in Arsenal’s match against Burnley was no other than Spanish midfielder Dani Ceballos.

On his full Arsenal debut since joining the club in July 2019, Ceballos made two assists, which allowed his teammates Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score goals, leading Arsenal to a 2-1 win over Burnley. As far as statistics go, Ceballos is the third Arsenal player to register two or more assists on his first Premier League start for the club, which, among other things, was what got him the Man-of-the Match award in yesterday’s game.

Arsenal edge past Burnley 0

The expectation was that Arsenal were going to cause Burnley too many problems, but that the visitors would put up a fight. In the end that’s pretty close to how the game played out, as Unai Emery’s men made it two wins out of two in the Premier League. It’s the first time they’ve been able to do so at the start of the league season since back in 2009, which kind of tells you all that you need to know about how things have gone in the last decade or so under the tutelage of Arsene Wenger.

Ozil considering future options 0

Mesut Ozil is thinking about his long-term future plans, according to Washington Post. With the soon 31-year-old slowly but surely inching closer towards the end of his professional career in European football, the outlet claims that Ozil’s agent Erkut Sogut has met up with D.C.United’s officials to discuss the possible move.

The source of the news, reportedly one well-acquainted with the situation, wishes to remain anonymous, however, given the fact that they were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. The move, which Sogut has discussed with D.C. United’s club executives Jason Levien and Sam Porter, might materialise as early as next year. Although United had hoped that the relocation might take place as soon as this winter, the source claims next summer is ‘more realistic.

It’s time to get back to business as the Premier League returns once again this weekend. The first set of fixtures certainly got us off to a good start, with a variety of really entertaining games and results to sink our teeth into.

Kits: when is it too much? 0

Posted on August 15, 2019 by Harry Kettle

We all love a brand new kit as much as the next guy, especially when it comes to retro kits. Thankfully, Arsenal’s home kit tends to resemble a pretty great retro kit this season, and the away kit does too. However, with the rumour of yet another kit being set to be released has certainly perked up a lot of fans in terms of paying attention to what’s actually happening off the pitch.

Is this Reiss Nelson’s time? 0

Posted on August 15, 2019 by Harry Kettle

As reported by Evening Standard, the one and only Reiss Nelson recently opened up about the upcoming season as the 19 year old attempts to break into the Arsenal first team. Nelson has had a strong pre-season, but either way, it’s going to be tough for him to do so.

Even with that being the case he seems to have a good head on his shoulders, which you always need at this level.

Go on, Reiss

“For me, I just want to take things as they come,” said Nelson. “I went away in Germany and I think I did well. But the main goal for me has always been playing in an Arsenal shirt week in, week out.
